                     Lemon Pies and Little White Lies


Written by: Ellery Adams

Purchase here:
Barnes & Noble

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I have to say that I truly enjoyed this book. Ellery Adams is a very skilled story teller and always develops her characters so that the reader can connect on many levels with them.  Ella Mae LaFaye is the main character and even though she has a magical touch, Ellery has written her in a way that makes it easy to see her as just a regular person that you would love to have as a friend or neighbor.
In this book Ella is facing perhaps her biggest challenge to date. She is still trying to deal with her feelings over Hugh leaving her to go search for a way to regain his powers. When she inadvertently adds too much liqueur to her St. Patrick's Day pies causing her customers to become intoxicated, she decides it is time to do something with her broken heart and all the emotions that seem to keep clouding her brain. So she locks the emotions up inside a pie and puts it in the freezer. With that done Ella Mae is starting to regain her rhythm and baking like she never had a broken heart, but all too soon tragedy strikes and she is on the hunt for a murderer. Plus freak storms with hidden symbols in them lead her and her aunts to believe a rogue witch or witches are behind these storms. Ella must find a way to stop these storms and figure out why an innocent human has been killed. 
A new man is also in town and he is as hot as Hugh. Just wait until you meet him in the book.
The story is wonderful, the plot keeps you guessing and the ending will touch your heart and leave you wanting the next book now!
